Wedding preparations start months in advance, and amidst all the chaos, brides often forget to take care of themselves. However, this winter, follow these simple rules to look your best.

* Don’t forget to moisturise: Winter weather is not fun for your skin. Cold weather and low humidity levels result in dry air, which leave your skin dry and lifeless. If you’re prone to dry skin, use a good moisturiser suitable for your skin type. Additionally, homemade hydrating masks can provide moisture in the winter months.

Adding natural moisturising ingredients like honey, avocado, yogurt, olive and jojoba oil, almond oil, bananas, and aloe to the mask will help you experience smooth and soft skin. Make sure you remove all your make-up before going to bed and apply a hydrating cream as it helps the skin breathe and gives much-needed nourishment. During winter, our skin tends to dry faster and requires regular exfoliation.

* Stay hydrated and eat healthy: To get a healthy, dewy glow, drink plenty of water as it hydrates your body and flushes away toxins. Eating healthy food is also crucial.

Ensure you layer your skin with proper hydrating products like a mist, serum and moisturiser before applying makeup. Start with a hydrating mist to moisten the skin and allow your make-up products to penetrate.

* For a perfect smile: During winter, your lips tend to become chapped. To get rid of dry skin, lightly exfoliate by rubbing your fingers on wet lips in a circular motion. After you exfoliate, use a lip balm or a healing cream as this will make your lips smooth and get the blood flowing to make your lips look fuller.

* Getting enough sleep: Sleep is one of the best rewards you can give your skin. During your sleep cycle, your body repairs each of its systems, including your skin. Deep breathing and meditation is also very important as watching your breath flow in and out helps you become aware of your skin and rejuvenates it.
